This Meetup's mission is to bring together people and companies interested in new and existing materials and the industries driven by these materials. Our members see new material innovations as drivers for change in industries such as consumer electronics, lifestyle, renewable energy, electric vehicles, medicine and more.
We're looking to help foster a friendly and informal ecosystem to help members find valuable new contacts and future collaborative opportunities with designers, engineers, marketers, business developers, scientists and more.
